BETH CROSLEY, Artist / Art Instructor

I’ve been teaching art to all ages throughout Southwest Florida since 2001. What began as a private drawing class has become a full-time career. I’ve taught privately and as an independent contractor for various organizations such as the City of Naples and the United Arts Council of Collier County.


All the photos on this website are from classes or camps that I have taught. My programs are designed to teach art skills and introduce various media and techniques while focusing on and encouraging individual creative expression and inventive design. My hope is to foster an interest in the art-making process, leading to the self-realization of one’s own inventiveness, creativity, uniqueness and potential.


I have an A.A. Degree in Art from Edison Community College and also attended IU University and the Fort Wayne Art School in Fort Wayne IN. I’ve been a member of the Naples Art Association, the United Arts Council of Collier County and the Naples Artcrafters (where I also served on the Board of Directors and as Vice-President). I’ve exhibited my art in many art shows in Southwest Florida and sold my art in a local art boutique for several years.
